current plan to obama care. i got a copy of your florida blue insurance. and about $54 a month. now i understand that under obama care it's going to go up at least they said that the policy they would offer you under florida blue would be $591. is that correct? >> that's correct. >> but all that spin hides the truth. a new republic reporter tracked diane down and explained how obama care plans could provide much better coverage and for just $50 to $100 more a month. her response, quote, i would jump at it. with my age things can happen. i don't want to have bills that could make me bankrupt. i don't want to lose my house. i would jump at it. as would millions of americans who don't have insurance or who have insurance so bad it doesn't really cover anything anyway. right wingers are hell bent on sabotaging obama care any way they can. but they can't stop americans from learning how the law works for everyone. joining me now is "washington post" jonathan capehart. thanks for being here tonight. >> hi, rev. >> jonathan, your column today points out the gop hypocrisy on all this. you wri
attention on the coverage requirements of obama care, pardon me, that insurance companies point to when asked why they dropped these plans. now, we're also learning of some early warnings from one of the authors of the affordable care act that it wasn't ready for prime time. in a memo from may of 2010, david cutler who was senior health care adviser to the president's campaign and will actually work to sell the plan to congress said, quote, i do not believe the relevant members of the administration understand the president's vision or have the capacity, capability to carry it out. cutler also said you need a major change at hhs. he warned of the centers of medicare and medicaid services which is the agency implementing the affordable care act. the agency is demoralized. the best people have left, i.t. services are antiquated and there are fewer employees in 1981 despite a much larger burden. cutler said the center for medicare and medicaid services was not up from making a transition from a fee for services payment to a value-based payment which is necessary to make obama care work. gr

media. anyway, on this point about cancellations, president obama said if you like your plan you can keep it. president obama why it. they know that these people like having a plan. they didn't cover hospitalization like the lady said earlier that have lifetime caps, and yearly caps. apparently the corporate media knows that these individual people getting cancellations did not like those plans. i'm assuming people didn't like those plans because you pay for something and you didn't get anything back. >> host: eric brings up the president's statement made several times over the years, something that glenn kessler of the fact checkers of "the washington post" looked up and gave the president a four pinocchio rating on the statement that if you like your health care plan you will be allowed to keep your health care plan, period. no one will take it away in a matter what. julie appleby? >> guest: the president has been watching that in the recent days. we heard him in boston last week he said the house majority of people that have health insurance at work you can keep it. succumbed some

payer plan. >> but, as president, obama buckled when conservative senate democrats, yes, democrats, threatened to join republicans in a filibuster if his plan included a public option. >> then i'm prepared to move against moving to the next stage of consideration as long as a government-run public option is included. >> the biggest pill among those corporate democrats was industry lapdog max baucus of montana, chairman of the senate finance committee. at one point baucus even had advocates thrown out of his hearings. >> i'm sorry. there will be order. can we have a recess until order can be restored. >> want a single payer system. why do you insist on spending more money when the single payer will give it to us at the price we're spending now? >> still, obama care made its way through the gauntlet of mercenary senators, predatory lobbyists, and greedy corporations to become law. rube goldberg would have been a very happy man. his principle, why do something simple when it can always be made harder, carried the day. and by the time it became law, the affordable care act was a monstr

and will hold the first senate hearing on obama care tomorrow. the thing we keep hearing over and over again, we heard it on the sunday shows and heard it this morning is why did the president say if you like your health care plan, you can keep it. the associated press is reporting three and a half million people have gotten cancellation notices. what do you make of all this, senator? >> what i mean of all of this is we're missing the big picture. yes, we had problems with the rollout, that's inexcusable, but they're being fixed. but let's keep the big picture in mind. we have millions of children today, up to 17 million children with pre-existing conditions who are covered for the first time ever. we have seniors getting free preventive services, never got it before. last year seniors saved over $6 billion in prescription drugs because we're closing the doughnut hole. and a lot of this, especially with children who are now on their parents' policies, that they never were covered before. we're missing the big picture here. millions and millions of americans are getting better health care coverag
at an organizing for action health care summit looking to rally grass roots support for obama care. the white house remains under fire because of president obama's promise that if americans liked their health insurance plan, they could keep it. but according to the associated press, at least 3.5 million americans have already been issued cancellation notices from their health insurance provid s providers. that number is likely to go up as data from half the states still remains unavailable. and there is a report white house officials debated the health care pledge back in 2009 in the likelihood that every american would in fact be able to keep their coverage. yesterday former white house adviser david axelrod defendeded the president on "meet the press". >> why did not you or somebody else say to him, mr. president, don't say no matter what you're going to keep your health care plan? was that bad practice? >> hindsight is 20/20. >> that's why you're there. >> the vast majority of americans, that statement will hold true for. for this small group, it hasn't. but the calamitous thing is that the web

president obama has promised repeatedly, that if you like your plan, you can keep your plan. so what happens to all those people now that they realize they actually can't keep their plan? >> there's about 900,000 people who are going to get -- 600,000, before today, they would have been locked into their health plan, now they can pick between different health plans and every health plan that they pick is going to have benefits they can rely on. you may have insurance that you might not really be covered when you need it. >> are the new plans on the exchanges really comparable? the law mandates certain minimums that people have to buy whether they need them or not. a man being forced to take on prenatal care. >> let's be clear, a woman has to pay for the men to get their prostate cancer fixed. lets be clear, we're not putting together an insurance system where you only pay for the services you need in that year, that would be paying as you go and not having insurance. the idea is that you have a group of people in the pool. >> the government is estimating that 40% of the 7 million people proj

that up to 35 mill cr million workers may lose their plans. the rest may keep their old plan, but they will be subject to having to pay for obama care mandated bells and whistles. >> so how much more -- sorry, i keep jumping on you. that seems read to those at home. but if that happens and they keep their coverage, how much more would they have to pay for that coverage? >> well, it depends on your employer size and all of that. some employers are having to pay a few percentage points more, others are having to pay double digit percentage rates, increases in their premiums in order to have coverage. the smallest firms are the small firms that are subject to the mandate, i should say, are probably going to be the most adversely affected. the smallest firms don't have to offer coverage in the first place. p they can just put their workers on the exchange if they want to. >> all right. chris, thank you very much. again, what this means, folks, just to put it in layman's terms, if you promise something for nothing and assume that if you want to cover 30 million uninsured american,

to point out the absurdity of obama care. you know, we're talking about health care plans being canceled. i'm hearing from many of my constituents that they're canceled, that their plans are being canceled as a result of the affordable care act coming in a letter form and that they're going to have to get other coverage and oh, by the way, now their coverage is going to be 127% more or 400% more in costs. that is unacceptable. so the question i have is why are those premiums going up so much? and the answer is because they're forcing americans to buy parts of health care coverage that no one will ever need. why would a male age 32 and single need to have maternity coverage? why does a couple that are age 60 who have raised their children have to have coverage for pediatric? this is why the affordable care act is so expensive, and it's time that the american people understand that these are all pieces and parts of the affordable care act that they're being forced to purchase. >> now, you've said that people in your district are looking at their premiums rising by as much as 669%. why so much
